Overall Very Good

I expected a different material when I started, but it was my fault. For what it is, a diary, it is a great material especially in the last hours of the book.

And narration - just fantastic! I don't think even Napoleon himself reading this material would sound so "Napoleonic". Bravo Jack Chekijian!
